Preparation

  8. Stir in turkey, double boiled potatoes and peas and carrots. Set aside to cool.
  9. In a separate bowl, cut 1 cup of butter into remaining  flour using a pastry blender. Mixture should form pea-size particles.
  10. Begin adding ice water, one tablespoon at a time, mixing well each time, until dough forms into a ball.
  11. Divide dough in half and roll out one piece, using a rolling pin and additional flour until dough is pliable and no longer sticky. Be sure that dough is larger than the diameter of the 9-inch pie pan.
  12. Place dough in pie pan, smoothing with fingers to fill pan, and then pour turkey mixture on top.
  13. Roll second piece of dough to similar size and place on top of the turkey pie filling. Seal edges of pie.

Helpful hints

  • To reduce potassium in potatoes use the Double Cook method. Peel and dice potatoes into 1” pieces. Boil in a large pot of water for 10 minutes. Drain the water and add fresh water to the pot. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender. 
  • Use a refrigerated, prepared pie crust if desired. Look for the lowest sodium brand.
  • For a lower fat and calorie version make half the pastry and use to top pie ingredients instead of the double pastry version.
